A friend of mine taught me how to make these peppers a few years ago. My husband loves these peppers! He can't BBQ without throwing some of these on the grill first, so he has something to snack on while he BBQ's.
When I traveled to Guadalajara, Mexico last year for a business trip, we ate at a steak restaurant that served very similar baked potatoes with the steak, along with charro beans. To my surprise, I found this similar recipe in one of my cookbooks. I was excited to be able to re-create this recipe at home!
I first tried this recipe because it sounded unusual and I was curious. To my surprise, it was actually very good, nice texture and taste!
--NOTE-- Use a block of cheddar cheese and grate it finely. If you use packaged pre-shredded cheese it won't melt correctly when baking!
I found this recipe in the "Authentic Italian Recipes Cookbook", compiled by The Christopher Columbus Ladies Auxiliary of San Antonio, Texas. My husband loves this steak! It's a nice change from the normal way we grill our steaks. I serve it with either Fettuccini Alfredo or baked potatoes.
This isn't your normal Italian Fig Cookie recipe, but it's very good! The difference in this recipe, it that it calls for maraschino cherries and Amaretto! Yum! They do take a little time to make, put they are very good and the flavor improves after a day or two. It wouldn't be Christmas without them!
I adopted this recipe from recipezaar. Until I make this recipe myself, I will leave the original poster's descrition.... "My husbands aunt gave us this recipe, we gave it a little twist by using the cider vinegar and butter flavor crackers. We usually have this every christmas. We just love it and the kids do too."
